Suspenders today. The suspenders on the pants I'm using as reference have canvas suspenders, with hardware to adjust the length of them. This is what I created today. Suspenders for the pants the Cowboy is wearing. He hasn't put on his shirt yet so his suspenders would be hanging at his sides. I had to make it look believable.
When I was finished making the suspenders out of wax, I painted them with a pain I had made up specially to have the color match the clay I'm using. This makes it easier to see the detail in the dark wax and makes it less confusing when people look at pictures of the finished clay.
